President Trump signed a major government funding bill, officially ending an hours-long government shutdown.


This comes after lawmakers voted 240-to-186 Friday morning to approve the $400 billion spending plan.

The bipartisan agreement was met with opposition by Senator Rand Paul, who spoke for several hours on the Senate floor against the legislation.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi also expressed opposition, saying she would not support the bill without a DACA fix.

The legislation includes a spending boost for defense, infrastructure, and disaster relief.
